About

Driven | Unique | Inspired

As an aspiring designer/carpenter from very early-on, I bring several levels to the design & build of my custom homes. You can be assured that I will bring a passion to the design & build of your new home that will match, if not exceed, your own devotion to the project. Additionally, you want to be sure that the company you hire to fulfill your dream will be a good fit for you. I pride myself in designing with my clients, not for my clients. I listen to your requirements; encourage you to provide me with a well thought-out portfolio of pictures, lists of ideas and requirements; and strive to deliver a final product that will make your decision to build a successful one.


My experience comes from over fifteen years of designing homes in and around Kamloops, BC. While traditional wood-frame construction is the predominant method of building homes in Kamloops, my designs have utilized other traditional and alternative methods of construction. Such methods include post and beam and ICF.

An additional perspective that I bring to the design table is my experience in the field of custom home construction.

While it makes for a busy work day, in addition to my time in the office, I also work on the job site several days out of the week constructing homes from the ground up. I believe that hands-on experience is an invaluable asset to the design of my homes. With this building experience my clients see the benefits in the ease at which I am able to develop design solutions to fulfill their spatial and aesthetic requirements. I am also able to provide a realistic view on the cost of certain design ideas. I believe that if you don’t know how to construct a home, then you certainly should not be designing one. I hope that you will take your time in making your way through my web site. There are many new developments still to be made to the site, but there are also some invaluable resources that may prove educational in your search for information on the home building industry.

Thank–you for taking the time to consider Original Home Designs Ltd. for the completion of your building project!
